This passionate interplay between the girl-queen and the wily conqueror provides the groundwork for George Bernard Shaw’s contention that there has been no social progress in the so-called Christian era, founded as it is upon judgment, guilt, and punishment, an era that can be characterized as "one of the bloodiest and most discreditable episodes" in the history of humankind. This is the third and final film in Barnes' 'Shaw vs. Shakespeare' series, starring Donald Moffat, Richard...

In maintaining that Brutus was the least morally-reprehensible character in Shakespeare’s play, Shaw here plays the critic, offering analysis to the scenes played by Barnes’ remarkable cast, led by Donald Moffat, Richard Kiley and Suzanne Grossman.

This is the first film in Barnes' 'Shaw vs. Shakespeare' series, considered by experts to be among the finest educational films ever made. Here is wonderful introduction to Barnes as an insightful and witty interpreter of Shakespeare on film, the opening film of the triptych focusing on George Bernard Shaw’s belief that, although Shakespeare’s play was superior to his own, the treatment of the character of Caesar was not. Shaw, as written by Barnes, prefers a Caesar whose...

Ever wonder how Matt Groening of 'The Simpsons' got his quirky sense of humor? Probably from his filmmaker dad, Homer Groening, who passed away in 1996. Although known for his documentaries, Homer Groening directed and narrated this film, ostensibly about color, but filled with an ongoing series of bikini-clad bathing beauties. The film is perhaps best viewed as a graphic artifact that will interest media historians seeking additional insight into the elements that influenced the cartoonist.

Director Piers Jessop’s 'Middle Ages - A Wanderer's Guide To Life and Letters,' is full of humor (some of it, wonderfully, on the dark side), and is a tour-de-force for the brilliant acting of Nicholas Pennell as ‘Robert,’ a fun-loving, arty, bawdy, and roguish guide to the culture, politics, and mores of the year 1350. Athletic and erudite, Pennell stole kisses, ran from pursuers, and leapt obstacles as he engaged the viewer by proving that old times may not have been all that different...

Johanna Alemann is believed to be the first woman filmmaker, operating as a sole proprietor, to run an academic film company in North America. Her focus was mainly on art. Her 'Nature as Impression' highlights Alemann’s painterly use of the camera to record nature scenes that she turns into cinematic impressionism. She includes an analysis of Impressionist paintings as they relate to color and shading in nature, focusing on Impressionists Manet, Monet, and Renoir, and Post-Impressionists...
